In general, I hope that when my makeup is in place I don’t look like a clown. However, clown makeup contouring is gaining in popularity and can really transform the way your face looks when it’s made up. It is called clown contouring because of the way it looks before you blend your products and finish your look. It might seem unnatural and weird, but I promise that once you get the hang of it, you’re going to love how you look. Here’s how to do it like the pros.
1. Use Highlighter on Your Cheek Bones
Basically, what you’re going to do is draw a triangle down the side of your nose and across your under eye area, coming to a point just above your cheekbones. The highlighter will be quite obviously lighter than your skin tone. That’s the point – it will add light to darker areas so that you get a flawless complexion when you’re done.
